So, despite flying to SFO for a week, I managed to fit in the 3 week 8 runs (28 mins each), albeit 2 on a treadmill in the hotel and 1 on the roads back in the UK. I'm so pleased, even though they were hard, hard work with 8 hours jet-lag and 11 hours stuck on a plane, but I just did it
Week 9 still looks daunting to me, but every time that happens I look at how far I've come (literally) and remind myself that the program has always been a stretch, but an achievable one. For the moment I'm not interested in speeds and feeds, but just looking forwards to completing this amazing program. Good luck to all the other week 8 and 9'ers out there, and all those who have that pleasure still to come.
